Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

David on the Tractor

 44 degrees this morning and calm.
The clear and dark morning turned into a sunny one
and I walked all around town and the two cemeteries.

Saw Lisa out running.
Haven't seen her for a while so we stopped to chat.

The farm pond down by the bulls.


Walking down the hill from the cemetery.


Walked 6 miles πŸ‘Ÿ

Stairs Number 21
In the yard of an abandoned house.
Must have been a walkway there at one time.
Now it just leads nowhere.


☀️    πŸŽƒ    ☀️

Beautiful for hanging laundry out so did two loads.
One was sheets and with it being cooler out they smell extra good.
Both bathrooms (1 1/2) got cleaned today too.

After lunch I finally washed my very dirty Jeep.
Figured I'd better, don't know how many more nice days like
this we'll have.

That done and it was time for my afternoon hike.
Ended up by Ken and David to see how the bridge was coming.
Worked at stopped on that and 
David was having fun learning to drive the tractor and how
every thing works. 


 Left them and hiked around a bit more and finally made
my way back home again.
Ken came along soon after.
He walked back to the house and left the David on the tractor.

That's all folks.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope your Wednesday was a happy one. πŸ™‚
πŸ‘©πŸ»‍🦳 happyone ❤️

The picture of David on the tractor reminded me of that old saying that when boys grow up, their toys just get bigger. ;-) Sounds like you had a nice day. My hiking shoes that you sent me will be getting another workout this weekend at another national park! Looking forward to it! See you again soon!

love the farm pond pic! A very lovely day with your two guys. Glad you could wash your Jeep and hang out your sheets.

Debby said...

Beautiful and cozy photos. I can feel the crisp air walking down a country road. You live in a beautiful area.

I LOVE that tree in that second photo. You will have to watch and see if it gets that way every year. I have been searching for a photo I have of a tree in Terre Haute...I took it maybe the year after Roger's stroke. It has never been as pretty since.

Four months does not seem like long, until you think about walking in them every morning for 6 miles!

...you sure have some gorgeous sugar maples!

Granny Marigold said...

Stairs that go nowhere seem odd but like you say, at one time they probably led to a walkway.

The fall colours are quite appealing.

It's good to learn tractor skills living where you live! Love those stairs leading to nowhere. Great photos!

I love those bright fall colors. What a beautiful countryside you have to walk in. Like father, like son...when it comes to driving a tractor!

Those first two photos are just the perfect picture of autumn. So beautiful. I cleaned both of our bathrooms today too, so that pesky chore is out of the way for awhile.

Lovely photos with orange trees.

God bless.

It's nice to be out and about on a beautiful day.

Looks like a beautiful walk, the Autumn colors and trees are gorgeous.
Take care, enjoy the rest of your week!

Working that type of machinery always looked so complicated to me! I guess it's probably pretty easy once you know how!

What a gorgeous tree!

Think these steps are very poignant.

David looks like he is having TOO much fun, on that tractor! -giggggles-

We had an old tractor that I could jump off of and pick up things in the way and then, finally, the tractor would catch up with me and I'd hope back on. They are fun!!
Love the rich reds of the maple(?) trees, and the stairway to nowhere!!

I need to wash & vacuum my car. Salt water film from the beach breeze & sand inside.

Hootin' Anni said...

hop back on...not hope
